                  Crinan Marine is closed. Crinmar, a slimed down from the original company, carries parts for Atomic 4, and Vire engines, and is a Kabota sales rep but I don't believe he handles any Yanmar stuff.The owners name is Keith and he works out of his home. His address is 873 Apple Down Dr, Kingston Ontario and his Tel is 613-634-8100.

                      Jason... when I refinished our Butterfly, I bought the best exterior, clear Silicone (the tube said 50 year) that I could find with the understanding that I would just test it out. I was well aware of the ..."there is only one place for silicone on a sailboat" rule, but I tried it anyway. That was about four years ago and we have had no leaks to date. Whatever you do, I would slightly enlarge the "weep" holes since you have everything disassembled.

                          Right or wrong here's what I did and it's worked for a while. When Sapphire was decommissioned, I removed both the Butterfly hatch and the screen. I carefully took everything apart, and then sanded and refinished all the individual parts. It took a while to build up a good finish...probably 5 or 6 coats with sanding in between to fill the grain completely. ( you could use a sanding sealer... Cabots is good) I used Cetol on all parts exposed to the sun and a urathane finish on the cabin side of things. When I put things back together, I first masked both the lexan pieces and the teak framework, filled the frame with the clear silicone that I mentioned before and gently pressed in each of the lexan panes. After carefully cleaning up the excess silicone, I waited for the stuff to tack and then removed the tape. After waiting overnight, I repeated the same process with the outer frame work...I did increase the size of the weep holes by clamping two of the exterior molding pieces together and re-drilling prior to finishing. I put tooth-picks in the weep holes before sticking things back together and removed them before the silicone was completely set.

                          My butterfly hatch is leaking as well. Do you have something that describes how you fixed it? I'd be interested in hearing what you did to address that problem.

                          Jason... when I refinished our Butterfly, I bought the best exterior, clear Silicone (the tube said 50 year) that I could find with the understanding that I would just test it out. I was well aware of the ..."there is only one place for silicone on a sailboat" rule, but I tried it anyway. That was about four years ago and we have had no leaks to date. Whatever you do, I would slightly enlarge the "weep" holes since you have everything disassembled.

                          5200 and 4200 are both so thick and sticky you can't spread them or work with them. You have to have hands of steel to squeeze them out of the tube. They work for bedding but I find for caulking the butterfly window, for example, they are useless

                                  I found the easiest way to fix the butterfly hatch from leaking is to make a sunbrella cover for it (with elastic around the edge so it is easy to put on and off) and then take a piece of plastic tarp and cut it to the size of the butterfly. You take the tarp and put it over the butterfly and then put the sunbrella cover over that. What water goes tru the sunbrella hits the tarp and rolls of. I keep the sunbrella cover on all the time while at the dock and during any rain while at anchor. You can even open the butterfly hatch with everything in place. It is a cheap and easy fix but very effective.

                                  Jason... when I refinished our Butterfly, I bought the best exterior, clear Silicone (the tube said 50 year) that I could find with the understanding that I would just test it out. I was well aware of the ..."there is only one place for silicone on a sailboat" rule, but I tried it anyway. That was about four years ago and we have had no leaks to date. Whatever you do, I would slightly enlarge the "weep" holes since you have everything disassembled.

                                  We'll see you in a few weeks.

                                  5200 and 4200 are both so thick and sticky you can't spread them or work with them. You have to have hands of steel to squeeze them out of the tube. They work for bedding but I find for caulking the butterfly window, for example, they are useless

                                  warmest regards,

                                  Are you talking about 3m 5200? I find 3m 4000UV to be excellent for all
                                  bedding on deck.

                                  Anyone know of a good deck or general use caulk that can easily be applied
                                  and works well? I can't stand this 3M crap.

                                    The brand I've always used is "Boatlife." It comes in a yellow and black tube or cartridge. I think it comes in white, mahogany and black. It can be kind of messy but if you mask off the area you're bedding or caulking and you're ready with a lot of paper towels it's not too bad. I clean it up right away with regular paint thinner. I've found that in I can clean right up to the edge of the compund bead using a Q-tip dipped in thinner without damaging the line of caulk -- at least if you're standing a few feet away.
